Cold Winter? Just say no

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, AL Written on April 26, 2013
If I wanted a fair-weather glove, I'd have ordered one. What kind of Winter do you guys live in? I'm in Alabama, for Pete's sake, and we don't exactly have what you'd call brutal winters. I had the yard while we fed chow, that kept me out there for about 2 hours. It was 4am, temp was probably 28, and it wasn't 20 minutes before my hands went NUMB. I mean the kind of cold that hurts when you warm back up. I was honestly kind of mad. I went on duty thinking "Heck ya, now I can stay out there without wanting to curl up and die" but that didn't exactly work out. On the yard, you don't stand in the middle of 700 inmates with your hands in your pockets unless you're dirty and the crooks are your homeboys. I have one hand on the pommel of my baton and the other free for a push-off strike, deploying spray and keying my radio. I have all that to do with my hands and really REALLY can't afford to lose functionality because of cold. Yeah, 28 isn't exactly arctic, but stand motionless in the dark on concrete at that temperature for two hours and see if you don't get cold. My feet were warm, and my boots aren't even insulated. I had a Mountain Hardwear Dome Perignon on top, ears and head were warm. Core was warm. The gloves were the insulatory equivalent of three pairs of latex gloves on top of each other. I'll use these in early Spring and late Fall, but when it gets cold, these go back in the closet.
Pros: Good fit, decent dexterity
Cons: Absolutely NOT a winter glove...
Would recommend: No

Good Gloves

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 31, 2010
These gloves a pretty good, but not great. I would rate them higher if the liners wouldn't partially pull out whenever I take them off. makes putting them on a bit more difficult, especially the thumb. When you have them on they are thin enough to do most tasks while on duty. Writing a ticket when brand new was difficult, but they lossened up enough so you get a little more "feel"
Pros: Good warmth and thin enough to to most tasks
Cons: liner has as a tendency to pull out when you take the gloves off...
Would recommend: Yes

Hatch Elite Winter Specialist Gloves

These gloves are a nice snug fit that keep your hands reasoably warm in the cold. They are tight enough to be able to maintain your dexterity, yet warm enough to keep the chill off. Good product at a great price!
Pros: Great price, tight fitting, reasonably warm...
